Hypercytokinemia plays a key role in the pathogenesis of systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS). Monocytes are the main source of cytokines in the early inflammatory phase. Simultaneous stimulation of toll-like receptors (TLRs) and triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells (TREM-1) activating receptor on monocytes results in the amplification(More)
The mechanisms underlying normal spermatogenesis and its pathology expressed as male sterility determined by t-complex located on chromosome 17 in mice are considered in this review. t-Complex is a very convenient model with diverse markers of expression of the genes involved in development of the functional features of the spermatozoa bearing t-complex.(More)
Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is an oxidant-producing enzyme that can also bind to cellular surface proteins. We found that band 3 protein and glycophorins A and B were the key MPO-binding targets of human red blood cells (RBCs). The interaction of MPO with RBC proteins was mostly electrostatic in nature because it was inhibited by desialation, exogenic sialic(More)
A fragment of a homolog of the complement component C3 gene was cloned and sequenced from the starfish Asterias rubens. A phylogenetic analysis of the gene, termed ArC3-like, demonstrated its close similarity to the C3 gene homolog of deuterostome invertebrates. A high level of ArC3-like mRNA expression was observed in circulating cells (coelomocytes), a(More)
The work deals with analysis of changes of cellular defense factors in the starfish Asterias rubens in response to injection of human erythrocytes (HE). The number of circulating coelomocytes, dynamics of their production of active oxygen forms, activity of peroxidase, and dynamics of elimination of human hemoglobin from coelomic fluid were estimated before(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the immunological phenotype of human umbilical vein endothelial cells in culture and dynamics of expression of inducible CD molecules of the endothelial cell surface exposed to hydrogen peroxide (H2O2, 100–300 μM) in vitro. PMA was applied as a positive control. There was an insignificant increase (9–21%) of CD31(More)
The work presents analysis of changes of humoral protective factors in the starfish Asterias rubens in response to injection of human erythrocytes (HE). The total protein concentration and the titers of hemagglutinins and hemolysins in starfish coelomic fluid, as well as the time of human hemoglobin elimination from circulation were estimated for 6–144 h of(More)
This study is devoted to the antiviral activity of peptide fragments from the PB1 protein - a component of the influenza A RNA polymerase. The antiviral activity of the peptides synthesized was studied in MDCK cell cultures against the pandemic influenza strain A/California/07/2009 (H1N1) pdm09. We found that peptide fragments 6-13, 6-14, 26-30, 395-400,(More)
We performed a comprehensive analysis of CCR6 and CXCR3 chemokine receptors and their ligands CCL20/MIP-3α, CXCL9/MIG, CXCL10/IP-10, and CXCL11/ITAC in the liver and blood of patients with chronic hepatitis C at different stages of the disease. TaqMan PCR was used to determine mRNA gene expression of chemokines and their receptors in liver specimens, xMAP(More)
Mouse t-complex located on chromosome 17 contains genes affecting only male fertility. Some genes of this complex are recessive lethals; nonetheless, the high frequency of the t-complex carriers in a population is maintained due to a mechanism referred to as transmission ratio distortion (TRD), i.e., after crosses with wild-type females, males heterozygous(More)
